Environmental violations in China: Descriptive, predictive, and prescriptive analysis

Air and water pollution in China has created public concern. In this talk, we discuss our empirical findings about the short-term and long-term implications of Chinese manufacturers who violated environmental regulations. Also, we present a model that can enable Chinese government to use publicly available data to predict which firm is more likely to violate regulations in the future.
